A rotary hoe is a piece of equipment used to loosen and overturn soil or clay. A tiller is a similar instrument, only that it is specifically suited to soft, sandy soils, while a rotary hoe is designed to work with hard, compact materials. Also known as a cultivator, rotary hoes are often used for farming practices and sometimes for everyday gardening and maintenance.
By comparison, rotary tillers are less likely to be equipped to handle large-scale tasks, such as preparing soil for planting crops. Rotary tillers are more often used for simple gardening tasks, although some models are capable of much more. Rotary hoes, tillers and cultivators are all powerful mechanical devices that can sometimes be combined or used interchangeably.
Rotary tillers are used to overturn soil in order to prepare it for new plants. They are usually used in backyards and gardens, where soil is generally not too compact, but soft and easy to loosen. At Jono & Johno, our rotary tillers can be used for all kinds of work, and are designed to make the user’s life easier.
These machines are equipped with an ergonomic handle, a simple pull-start engine and quick-release hand throttle control. Features such as these make it possible to use our rotary tillers without physical strain or general difficulty. With rubber wheels designed to suit any terrain, you also have the flexibility of being able to use these machines on almost any kind of land.
In terms of power, our rotary tillers are available with 2-stroke or 4-stroke engines. They have six blades that allow for an extra-wide swathe, and can come with 24 or 36 steel teeth. Not to be confused with whipper snipper parts , rotary hoes, tillers and cultivators work only with the soil, and are not used for surface trimming. They assist with churning the dirt and getting the right seedbed for your favourite crops.
Besides rotary hoes and tillers, there are many products you should invest in to ensure a functioning and attractive backyard or veggie patch. Whipper snippers, for example, can make a world of difference in the maintenance of your backyard. Water pumps, hoses and fittings are also necessities, especially when we consider the safety benefits of having water on hand during bushfire season. Stainless steel garden sprayers are excellent for killing weeds, and are much more reliable than plastic sprayers which can crack and leak.
